For a character that thinks life is such a drag, there sure are a lot of great Shikamaru Nara quotes from the Naruto series. This genius shinobi often has some really wise things to say, and there are definitely a fair share of epic Shikamaru quotes as well.

Many of Shikamaru's best quotes are about how lazy he is - "Laziness is the mother of all bad habits. But ultimately she is a mother and we should respect her." On the other hand, Shikamaru has some really badass lines, particularly in Naruto Shippuden. When he got his revenge for Asuma's death, he uttered this amazing line to Hidan - "That pathetic Lord Jashin or whatever isn't your God anymore. I am. The only one bringing down vengeance is me."

No matter what your favorite Shikamaru Nara quote is, vote it up below so that it rises to the top of the list. You can also downvote any lines that didn't really impact you in a big way.

An Average Life


"Someday, I just want to marry a regular girl who isn't too ugly and not too pretty. Have two children, first a girl, then a boy. Retire after my daughter is married and my son becomes a successful ninja, and spend the rest of my life playing shōgi or Go. Then die of old age before my wife."

Total Waste


"Ughh. Great. What's the point in setting the alarm if I'm going to wake up before it goes off? What a total waste. Now I've gotta shut it off but I don't feel like moving. But if I don't shut it off it will just keep ringing and ringing. Sigh. It makes me tired just thinking about the whole thing. Some mornings are such a drag..."
